Arsenal’s fans can just ask the question: Why is our lovely team playing so bad? Why don't we see any transfers? Only Granit Xhaka and Holding. Let's take a look at the other teams transfer politics this summer.
- Manchester United - Mkhitaryan, Pogba, Ibrahimovic, Bailly.
- Manchester City - Nolito, Jesus, Sane, Stones, Gundogan
- Chelsea - Kante, Batshuayi
- Liverpool - Wijnaldum, Mane, Karius
- Leicester – Mendi, Musa.
All of the big teams had done very good signings during this summer transfer window. Yes, we can't forget the fact Arsene Wenger has so many injured players. That's why Arsenal has so many problems at the start of the new season. But tell me please why does team not do any attempts to sign 1-2 footballers? In game against Liverpool the second central defender was Calum Chambers, who played for the first team not so many games to be ready to the Premier League pace. In that game, Liverpool players (Mane, Coutinho) were much more quicker than Arsenal defenders, and new man for «the gooners» Granit Xhaka was "booed" by the fans. Many said Arsene Wenger can sign Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia FC. But the French manager decided not to pay over 30M for the German central defender. Well, let me tell a little about yesterday's match against Leicester City.
After losing in Community Shield to Manchester United, last year champions started the Premier League in not the way they wanted. They lost in the first game of the new season 1-2 to Hull City. In this transfer window they couldn't keep N'Golo Kante in the team, Frenchman's gone to Chelsea. Other leaders - Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez signed new contracts with club and will stay there for years (Arsenal was interested in both of players, Vardy was in Arsenal with one leg, but decided not to go to London. «The gooners» offer for Mahrez was 50M, but they received negative answer from Leicester bosses).
Anyway, close to the pitch. In that game Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud and Jack Wilshire started on the bench (don't think about injuries, they were ready to play all 90 minutes). But Wenger started the game with Alexis Sanchez in attack. What could small chilean player do against Morgan and Huth? Yes, you are right - nothing. Arsenal must say thank you to the referee Mr. Mark Clattenburg. He didn't put on the penalty spot. The first time was clear foul on Drinkwater, the second one on Ahmed Musa.
Really interesting what Arsene Wenger is going to do in this situation. Anyway, he still has one week to sign players to rescue himself and club's position.
